Adolescent 'Alberto' Headed for Florida

NHC 5-Day Track
(as of 6 am Saturday)

Saturday morning, the AP brings news of the "first tropical depression of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season." By afternoon, the comparatively small storm is expected "to become the year's first named storm."

In which case it would be "Alberto." Although there is "a greater than normal amount of uncertainty" about where in Florida it's heading, the NHC doesn't expect it to become a hurricane.

Got it? Young, comparatively weak, not well organized, and hard to predict -- a typical adolescent. Someone that bears watching, but it won't tear down the house.
